General Information

All sessions and courses will take place at the 3rd Tynemouth Headquarters, Billy Mill Lane, North Shields.

Session times: Evening - 7pm to 9pm. Saturdays – 9am to 1pm. However, all times can be changed on request and sessions can be doubled up on weekends.

Evening sessions can only take place when the HQ is not being used by our sections. This unfortunately limits usage to a Monday, Thursday or Friday night.

Age Restrictions: Shooting Sessions are available for Cubs onwards, however they need to be mature enough to understand and follow the safety rules and understand the potential for danger. All other courses are for Scout age onwards - although may be unsuitable for younger Scouts.

Fees cover the cost of pellets, targets, wear and tear/maintenance to the equipment when required and in the case of NSRA course - student manual/badge and certificate.

Tea and Coffee can be made available for a small donation to the group, on a session by session basis. Please request this in advance.

All sessions are ran by a qualified NSRA instructor.
